What I'm Reading: I've been on vacation since last Thursday (today is actually my first day back at work) so I read Siege and Storm on Thursday, and I loved it. Once I actually write my review of The Madman's Daughter, I'll get this review up. I haven't picked my next book yet--thinking I'll do another debut since I'm behind on my DAC.
What I'm Writing: The first couple of vacation days were dedicated to dealing with a few things around the house--some planned (finishing unpacking), some not so planned (cleaning up the flooded basement). Then my husband and I headed to Chattanooga, where he built in time specifically for me to write.
I hit two pretty big milestones, First: Ten chapters to go! Second: 70,000 words down. As you may have guessed, I decided to move forward with drafting (perhaps at the urging of some unnamed commenters...you know who you are). My goal this week is to finish part five, which will leave part six--the Battle of Shiloh.
|Bed and breakfast bliss.|
What Else I've Been Up To: Vacation? Yes, please. We had some great food and stayed at a beyond lovely bed and breakfast. It was a much-needed escape. I'm only hoping the peace I was able to gain will stay with me. I think yoga may help with that :)
|For those of you on Twitter Monday night, these are the cocktails I mentioned.|
What's Inspiring Me Now: Spending time with my husband this weekend has been awesome. He really does fuel my creativity, and he takes me nice places to see nice things. Here's a video I took that I've been watching for inspiration.
